I am a major book worm. I have delved into the pages of so many books. So far my running favorites (behind Harry Potter series [which is #1 forever!]) are 'The DaVinci Code', 'Angels and Demons', the 'Artemis Fowl' series, 'Faerie Wars', 'Goddess of Yesterday', 'The Joy Luck Club' (and other books by Amy Tan), the 'Princess Diaries' series, and many others. As could be assumed by this list, I mainly read fantasy, but I like a little romance thrown in the mix once in a while. ;)
I'm going to start putting all the banners I have from the forums here (because the signatures have a stupid character limit).

This quiz was so freaking awesome, I just had to put this one in because it is so siriusly freaking cool! Not exactly the average 'which marauder era person are you' quiz.
You're Sirius Black. You are awesome. You are so
awesome that you took on a werewolf by
yourself once a month for over 6 years. You
are so fucking awesome that you went to
prison for your best mate. You are amazingly
hot and sexy and wonderful. Everyone wants to
be you. In fact, in 1975 a small child died in
his attempts to become you using polyjuice
potion. But we don't speak of this. In
Brazil, the indigenous tribes worship you as
a God due to you silky shiny hair.
Which Marauders Era Character are you?

OhmygodohmygodohmygodOHMYGOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was such an EVIL CLIFFIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You must update before I: 1) Combine the Fununculus Curse with the Jelly-Legs Jinx; 2) Impersonate you and write up chapter 2 myself; or 3) continuously beg you to post chapter 2 until you do. You have a siriusly awesome story with an even more siriusly awesome plot. You haven't updated since last year and now I'm saying you must continue before I plead insanity or continue writing my own 'Sirius comes back' story. Choice 3 is preferable so..................................... *gets off chair and kneels* PLEASE UPDATE VERY SOON! *sits back down on chair and regains composure* as you can see Sirius Black's welfare in your story is keeping my sanity in check. 100000000000000000000000000000/10 (feel worthy, I've never given any other author this high a rating though there are some who are right on up there)
Summary: Voldemort is vanquished, Ron and Hermione have moved out of the Burrow together, Harry and Ginny are in love now that she is fresh out of Hogwarts, but not everyone is happy. When Harry leaves on a mission for the dwindling Order of the Phoenix, he is kidnapped by remaining Death Eaters who are out for revenge. This is Ginny's story, of rescuing the man she loves. Post-HBP
That was a really great ending. Real touching. On to the sequel!
Author's Response: yay :]
Awww. That was so cute. Loved the scene of Harry seeing his parents, Sirius, and Dumbledore again. Just two quick notes. The Full-Body Bind's incantation is Petrificus Totalus, and 'Death Eaters' is capitalized. That's about it, so awesome story, and I can't wait for the next chapter. I'll be watching.
Author's Response: oops. thanks... the last chapter is submitted!
Holy socks of Trot! Where on earth did you put Harry? Where does McBride go when he leaves the school? (wait a sec, I've seen this question before...) Anyway, it was well written and I liked it. Can't wait for chapter 9.
Wow, great chapter. This just had hits on all sides when I least expected it. Wham, there's Aberforth. Then, wham, McBride's on the edge of life and death. Then, all of a sudden, WHAM, right from behind, Aberforth has the locket! I don't know why I didn't see that one coming. I must be dense or something....
Author's Response: Yea, alot happened last chapter huh? It really lead needed to though. There were a lot of storylines I needed to get into swing or the story would be 100 chapters long. :) Sorry if it was too much!
Summary: Since the tragedy at the Astronomy Tower, Harry has become an even more formidable wizard, but a shocking revelation may mean the difference between life and death for The Boy Who Lived. It is the final stage of Harry's quest to destroy Lord Voldemort - can he save the Wizarding World and those he loves from the treachery of the Dark Lord... and also save himself? [Action takes place in media res towards the end of Harry's Seventh Year at Hogwarts (Post-HBP).]
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Harry can't die!!! Please no! I started crying when I thought he died the first time and the tears are flowing now. Just don't kill Harry, kill me instead! Oops, sorry, got a little carried away with that last line. Hehehe. Please have the next chapter up really soon!
Could you please update soon? I'm hanging from the edge of a cliff here! I really want to see what happens next!
Author's Response: thanks!
Summary: In this sequel to Harry's Our What???, James and Lily have time-travelled to the past and finally found out the truth about who their son is. Meanwhile, in their true time-frame, the Marauders have concocted a plan to rescue James and Lily. But when they arrive in Harry's time, they realize they can't get back and must seek the aid of their older counterparts.
Note: This is supposed to be for chapter 4. Now, back to the review.
Hahahahahahaha! Sirius and Luna? Totally spectacular! Romeo and Juliet is my favorite Shakespeare play. I can't wait for chapter 5. You know what would be funny? If one of the Gryffindor Chasers was sick or something and James took their place! That would be awesome! Really high score/10. What did you think of the Monty Python things on WGBH? Eric Idle and Graham Chapman were numbers 1 and 2 out of 6! The other 4 are bound to be great. Long live Graham! *hem hem* OH! And do think it's a possibility that J.K. got some of her ideas from Monty Python?
Author's Response: lol, that would be cool! Maybe I'll do that... I usually take ideas from reviewers (if I ask nicely, of course.) Ooo, I loved the Personal Best series! Graham Chapman's was my favourite and really sweet (meaning... touching... not, like, totally radically sweet, man! But that too I suppose) except for that Michael Palin and the rest looked so old. :( I heard John Cleese's was hilarious- really looking forward to that in two days! And of course, Michael Palin's because he's my favourite Python. I do think it's a possiblity! I wrote a whole article on it when I was bored!!! Did you read my mind or something??? OMG, that's too weird... anyway... here's a link if you would like to see someone write an essay when they had WAAAAAY too much time on their hands... Oh, those were the days... http://palinidle.topcities.com/pythonrowling.html What's worse, I actually wrote a story to go with it. The Pythons trying to break into JK Rowling's house... it was rather... interesting, to be frank... Called "The Pythons and Their Copyrights" on the same site as my essay. Pretty weird... Anyway, this must be the longest response I've ever written. Whoa.
Okay, this is my third review for this chapter. I am now begging you to update! *gets down on both knees* PLEEEEEEEEAAAAAASE!!!!!!!!! Could you submit chapter 6 for tomorrow? My reason is listed below.
b-day countdown: 1 day!!!!!!!!! Tomorrow!!!!!!!! YAY! :D
PLEASE UPDATE! I beg of you! my patience is limited (I'm surprised I haven't done this earlier) and it's been more than a month since you've sent in a new chapter. Could you show us all you're still alive? Please! I really want to know what happens next.
What happened? Did you die and that's why you haven't updated in about three months?? Please update, I like this story.
"I think people who stand in rivers should be taxed...oh bugger..." ~Mr. Gumbee
Author's Response: Crap, you\'ve found me out! No, I\'m not dead, just pretending, lol. Inspiration began to run out, and I found myself listening to music and reading and drawing more then writing. The past two weeks, I\'ve shaken myself out of this horrible phase and started to write again. Next chapter should be out next week. HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hee hee, I love the gumbees...
Yea! An update! I can't wait for the next one! Since you are in 3 plays at the moment, I think I can forgive you, if you take a really long time. I just finished my own on Saturday night, it was Grease (a musical) and a lot of fun. So break a leg. *pulls out a 16 ton weight* Oh, so sorry, I didn't mean that literally. *puts weight away*
Can't wait for chapter 6.
Author's Response: lol, thanks! How was your play? I can't sing, so how on earth I ended up with a major part in our school musical gets me really confused... Think of Sirius. That's about how bad I can get. Sirius's singing is quite based on mine, actually.
Oh no! Kelsid, did you die?!?!?!?!?! *hears silence* NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! KELSID!!!!!!!!!!!! Whatever you do don't walk into the light! You haven't updated for ages. Do I have to start writing my own chapters to continue for you? Though I'll tell you now that they won't be as good as yours. Please answer anyone's reviews (they don't have to be mine) and then I'll rejoice because one of my favorite authors (and the one I've been reading the longest) is still alive!
Grease was great, thanks for asking. I swear I've asked this maybe 20 times before, but I have to ask it again...when will Harry run into his godfather? Some new questions: Will Harry meet the young Marauders? How will Remus react when he meets his younger self (if he ever does)? Will Lily really have a nice starring role in chapter 6? Will Sirius and Luna get together for a little while? WHERE ARE ALL THE MONTY PYTHON QUOTES AND REFERENCES?????? I'm so sorry I had to scream, but I really love this story and I've been addicted to it since I started reading it on Christmas Eve (it was the first fan fiction I ever read). I need more humor in my life. Have you even noticed that my only story (at the moment) is a Dark/Angsty fic and the one I have planned (that just got rejected) is a D/A fic too? I read humor, I can add some humor to my fics, but I ain't good at writing sheer randomness. I need you for that. Holy crap, this is probably the longest review I've ever written. See? You've inspired me. :)
Author's Response: lol! Sorry, I've been really busy and haven't even had time to look at reviews by my dedicated reviewers. Okay, Harry will meet the young Marauders. Remus will react... err... hmm. Well, I'll have to figure that one out. Lily will have a starring role, because she needs some time in the spotlight! Sure, Sirius and Luna might hook up. Monty Python will appear again next chapter... haha... in person.... oops. Didn't say that. Anyway, expect the next chapter soon. Hopefully. I love long reviews!
After reading Schmerg's review, I second the suggestion of throwing in Whizzo chocolates. Besides getting the idea for Cockraoch Clusters from them, I do believe she also got Chocolate Frogs from them too (except they were real frogs with the bones left in for that extra crunch. :D
Another recommendation is to have a random ghost sound like Mr. Gumby (another Cleese-y thing to do) or have them look Spanish and a student will call them senor (can't do a ~ on the n, sorry) to make him mad (Chapman) or have a bunch of people say randomly "lemon curry?" tee hee...Now where's my bloody parrot.... ;)
YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! An update!!!!!!!!!! And it was a good one too!!!!! Have Fred and George finally realized that James isn't Harry? Poor Neville, turned into an armadillo, how the irony never ceases. What happened to Peter? And where did younger Sirius end up (if that's "Padfoot"). lily_writesshall finish this review by begging for an update very soon and by asking if the pre-school teacher before Sirius was Mr. Gambolputty- *mysterious hand interrupts by slapping over mouth to stop lily_writes from saying an incredibly long name*. lily_writes liked writing this review in the third person, lily_writes may do it again if Kelsid wishes. ;)
Thank you soooooo much for updating! I feel like I've been awaiting this new chapter forever! Do you think you could have a sick or injured Chaser and put James in their place? That would be awesome to the extreme! As always, your story RULES (it was actually the first I read). P.S. The Monty Python Quotes rock ("I DON'T LIKE SPAM!!!!) ;D
Almost forgot. Having Sirius as a preschool teacher will be siriusly funny! ;) *sigh* I love him so, thanks for bringing him back! When will Harry find out he's back???????? One last thing, your Sirius in a dress drawing is really nice, I like it a lot!
Thought I'd review and say that was a totally fab chapter.
